Make it a joy

Don’t make it a chore. Make it a joy.

Instead of avoiding the effort, what if you could be thankful for the opportunity to do it? Instead of resenting the effort, imagine filling it with your own joy.

Each moment is what you choose to make of it. What influences it more than the time, the place, the circumstance, is your attitude.

Be good to yourself and be much more effective at what you’re doing. Find a way to put joy into it.

Let go of blame, worry, anxiety, distraction, and let yourself focus on joyful completion of the task. Feel great about being you, right here, right now, in this situation, able to do what you must do.

You have work to do, and you might as well get the very most out of the time you spend at it. Put joy into it and get maximum value out of it.

— Ralph Marston
